has happened in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at the u.n., he said six times, he talked about the urk tube video. look, if we are hit by terrorist, we are going to call it for what it is -- a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris, has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi,a i place where we knew there was an al qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video, now they are trying to blame the romney/ryan ticket for making this an issue. with respect to iraq, we have the same position before the withdrawal, which was, we agreed with the obama administration, let's have a status of forces agreement it make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't ha
and implicit in is what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said on television in that five days later actually about it being a spontaneous demonstration responding to the video, a copycat demonstration of what had happened earlier in cairo was not correct, and then they in turn from the u.n. mission keep saying there was an intelligence memo and everyone is standing in a circle pointing the finger elsewhere. >> it has the same sort of ethos of what happened after 9/11. when you go back and look -- the original 9/11, a lot of data points that might have been able to point to a danger here, point to some issues related to security. we see this now because this was a country that had been involved in historic revolution, had been a hot spot and we're being told that ambassador stevens had wanted greater security. some discussion about when the duty date for some of the members of that security team had expired that he had requested more, that was not done. some of the issues about resources, about judgments made at the time. now that something this awful has occurred, it puts a different light o
a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we are going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. should we have the marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? we knew there was an al qaeda cell. this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they are blaming the romney- ryan ticket. we had the same position before the withdrawal. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. he failed to get the agreement. that is what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. including your son. we also want to make sure that we do not lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, we agree with
contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense
and sometimes far from it, but there seems to be contention between the state department and the u.n. are u.n. representatives knowing what was happening and why there was not the information flow as i see this properly. >> sure, but as you understood in the hearing even within single bureaucracies there are different points of view. they said today they were uncomfortable with the security in bengahzi and would like to see more assets. any military commander if you ask him, do you want more troops? the answer is yes. do you want more assets, the answer of course is yes. it just shows there is this difficult balance of being able to be accessible and doing your job as diplomats around the world, and having an appropriate level of security understanding that the risk is there and it is never going to be zero. >> eliot: look p.j. you're making an important point. whenever you go back and mick a critique of the information flow, there will be failures and there will be judgments. that's the nature of bureaucracy. but the question then arises is this critique being driven by nefarious politics in
happened just in the last few weeks, they sent the u.n. ambassador to say that this was because of a protest in a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n., and in his speech at the u.n. he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we're hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. shouldn't we have a marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi, a place where we knew that there was an al-qaeda cell with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video, now they're trying to blame the rom ty -- romney/ryan ticket for making this an issue. and with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama, and he failed to get the agreement. we don't have a set of forces agreement be
forward and he's allowed the u.n. security council, russia and china to determine our policy. all these are acts of weaknesses as opposed to making clear and we haven't worked closely with our allies as evidence by the recent u.n. meeting when the president had time for whoopi goldberg but couldn't meet with netanyahu. >> one of the criticisms, this appears to be management of the arab spring. that is a big part. does governor romney think it was a mistake to push mubarak out? >> what he has said is that we have forces that are of extre extremism and forces of moderation an we should be aligned and help those forces. a difference in egypt is one that's on the table today. governor romney says we should have conditions. we shouldn't write off a billion dollar debt. >> but going back to mubarak. was that a mistake? does governor romney believe that's a mistake? >> how it was handled was a mistake. >> pushing mubarak out was a mistake? >> let me give you the answer. first of all, for two years, president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy and civil society in egypt, s

. welcome, greg. >> indeed. good to see you. two of the top u.n. intelligence directors clamming vice president joe bidenen to try to lay the blame on the intel community rather than the white house. and hillary clinton offers another assessment, saying it's still too early for anyone to know exactly what happened. >> no one wants to find out exactly what happened more than i do. i have appointed an accountability preview board that's already started examining whether our security procedures were appropriate, whether they were properly implemented and what lessons we can and must learn for the future. and we are working as thoroughly and as exspeak dishly as possible knowing we can't afford to have accuracy to speed. our government it sparing no effort in tracking down the terrorists who perpetrated this attack. >> molly is joining us live in washington. molly. >> hi, jamie. a former cia director and a former homeland security director are saying vice president biden said it was erroneously linked by the obama administration to a protest over video is because the intelligence communit
here has been very success phil, especially using his u.n. speech, to put iran and sanctions center stage. the question for the israelis though, which president is going to take a tougher line with iran? obviously the prime minister here feels as though a president romney would take a much tougher line in the debate. vice president biden spent a lot of time trying to assure everyone that the under an obama administration, iran would not be allowed to get a bomb but privately a number of israelis really question the resolve of the obama administration to take the steps necessary for iran or possibly a military strike. jamie? jamie: leland vittert, live in jerusalem. leland, thank you so much. bill: now the morning after how are the two campaigns playing this debate today especially after exchanges like this one? >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that is $3200 benefit cut. >> that didn't happen. >> these are from your actuaries. >> more people signed upper for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president -- so
the tensions over the economics and the austerity measures the u.n. imposed on some countries in the euro zone. >> the door of the nobel opened at exactly 11:00 local time, as happens every year where the committee chairman makes his announcement. once again, it was a huge surprise. >> the nobel committee has decided that the nobel peace prize for 2012 is to be awarded to the european union. >> the european union emerged from the seventh station of the second world war in which tens of millions of people were killed. the aim was to prevent further conflict in europe. focusing initiatives on france and germany. >> today war between germany and france is unthinkable. this shows a well maintained effort and confidence that former foes can become close partners. >> what's now known as the european union expanded rapidly. the fall of the berlin wall led to eastern europe's country joining. and it was something the european commission president also focused on today when he gave his reaction to the award. >> european union was able in six countries to reunite almost all european continents. freedom,
to deliver a big foreign policy speech of his own next week. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton endorsed romney and joins me with what kind of message governor romney needs to send in the speech on monday. . >> new reaction to the deadly attacks on n.a.t.o. troops by afghan soldiers, inside jobs, we've had too many in recent months and they're known as green on blue attacks, and fox news military analyst embedded with the special operation forces in afghanistan. colonel north outside of kabul. colonel? >> jamie, there are remarkably young americans on the ground confronting green on blue attacks and following the story since we've been back in country and been with special u.s. operators and here is just some of what we're seeing and hearing here in afghanistan. >> today we traveled to a remote outpost where three marines were killed in a green on blue attack and asked the special opes leader the effects of the incident. >> in the aftermath of some of these events have any come to you and said we're sorry about what happened? >> yes, sir, i mean, we've become like one of the vil
there was no understanding or no agreement from the u.n. that diplomacy was given some time to work. >> it's great we got multilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council. unfortunately the price we paid for getting china and russia to buy into the sanctions was that the central bank sanctions would not be included. everyone agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009-2010 but not in # 2011-2012 but they said it would under mine the diplomatic strategy reaching out to the ayotollah, unconditionally trying to get unconditional talks. they were silent when there was a genuine protest movement in iran that would have put political pressure on the regime. all the moments whether it was economic or political pressure in 2009 and 2010 the administration did nothing because they believed t
, we know they knew it was terrorism within the first day. and yet, the president goes to the u.n. and says video, video, video. >> sean: they said it was spontaneous, lie. they said it was video, lie. the libyan president told us in day 1 and intelligence told them. the state department is saying, we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we knew it wasn't spontaneous. we have a major problem here. let me go back to biden and to this debate, for just a second here. because they have sequestered this guy for over a week now, preparing him, you know, i guess, you know, filling his head full of zingers, as they like to say, one-liners. you know, isn't there weakness? nobody in the media seems to be able to figure this out that they have a four-year record. it's a failed record. no matter what they say that -- congressman ryan gets to say -- why didn't do you that? this is what you did do. this is what we will do differently. it seems like a pretty easy formula. >> well, look, i think you are going to see that very directly. i think congressman ryan is going to bring up the failur
is that the romney campaign may have done something different earlier and may have gone less through the u.n. and may have been more vocal about their criticism of u.n. both have the same policy on syria. the difference is the romney campaign wouldn't have gone through the u.s., wouldn't have been more vocal and supported syrian opposition earlier. on the actual policies, i don't think romney has been able to make a big contrast. in the last debate where this will come to romney to make that contrast beyond just the rhetorical differences of style and attitude, which he's clearly trying to make. >> i would love to have you both back after that last debate. it will be fascinating to see how that plays out. we've got that town hall style coming up next week. thank you, gentlemen. good to see you both. >>> what did the bosses think of biden and ryan's performances? you probably guessed. anyway, here is president obama last night. >> i thought joe biden was terrific tonight. i could not be prouder of him. i thought he made a very strong case. >> as for romney, his camp says the governor called ryan and c
testimony of state department officials. he is doubling down on denial. >> greta: the former u.n. bamboss dor, john bolton is here. >> incompetence, ideology or coverup. but this is looking like the comedy routine of "who's on first"? >> i think vice-president biden really crossed an important line, reinforced today. they have dug a mote around the white house on the one hand and the state department and the intelligence community on the other. basically saying that the buck stopsa the state department, as ed henry asked the spokesman earlier today. if that's the case, one has to ask, what is the national security council staff for, if not to monitor what is going on at the state department to know where the security problems exist? don't forget, ambassadors are the president's personal representatives, obviously, they work for the state department. but the ambassador covers all of our agencies overseas and all presidential appointees. so to say, we didn't know about it is an admission of real failure on the part of the top management of the white house. >> greta: what secretary of state
